The Importance of Eye Care
You might think you have your skincare regime down to a tee. It’s probably taken some trial and error, but you’ve found the products that work for you and your skin is thanking you for it. But there is still one step that so many of us seem to stumble on, simply because we don’t think it’s that important, and that’s looking after the delicate eye area.
From dark circles and puffiness to dehydration and premature ageing, the skin around your eyes takes a battering, which is exactly why eyecare should be at the top of your list of skincare priorities. Not only is the skin around your eyes 40% thinner than the rest of your face, it also loses moisture much faster making it the driest, most fragile area of the face. Combine this with the constant movement of your eyes – on average we blink 1200 times an hour – and there’s little wonder this area is quick to show signs of ageing, fatigue and general stress.
Eye creams are vital for keeping the skin around your eyes bright and healthy, and if you haven’t already guessed, eye creams happen to be one of our favourite skincare products. At MONU, we’re proud to offer a variety of eyecare products, allowing you choose a formula that targets your specific needs and under eye concerns. Here’s a few of our firm favourites:
For Puffiness: Eye Cool Gel
Our invigorating blend of Arnica, Vitamin C, Sodium Hyaluronate and Ginseng helps this refreshing gel work to quickly restore hydration and reduce puffiness whilst refining skin tone for a brighter look. It really is an all-round miracle product for weary eyes.
For the ultimate cooling sensation, try popping it in the fridge for 10-15 minutes.
For Dehydration: Collagen Eye Cream
When it comes to anti-ageing, prevention is the key, which is why we urge you to start looking after your eyes now! Choosing a collagen rich formula, like our Collagen Eye Cream, will not only help to replenish moisture levels, but it’ll also re-energise the eyes and slow the signs of premature ageing – like fine lines and wrinkles.
For Fine Lines: RENU Lip and Eye Active Lift
Packed with potent active ingredients, including Arnica, Rosehip Seed Oil and Siberian Ginseng Extract, this serum stimulates the skins natural collagen levels to tighten crepey skin, reduce the appearance of lines and brighten dark circles. The complexion is instantly revived, ensuring a well-rested look.
The All-Rounder: Active Collagen Eye Patches
Formulated using 99% concentrated collagen, these patches are an indulgent treat that promise to bring the sparkle back to your eyes by fighting signs of fatigue, deeply hydrating. Simply apply the patches under the eyes, dampen with a sponge and leave for 20 minutes before gently peeling them off. Do not rinse or tone the eye area after removing the patches.
Top tip for application:
When it comes to eye cream, it’s best to remember that a little goes a long way. A pea-sized amount is plenty for both eyes, which also means you get more for your money! To apply, simply dot the product under the eye and to the upper brow bone in a semi-circle shape and press into the skin using a dabbing motion. Applying any closer to the eye could risk it migrating into the eye, which can lead to irritation.
